Moving On to a New Look – Guys Edition
Whether you are actively looking for love or taking a break from the dating scene, post break up is an ideal time to become the best version of yourself.
Once you have spruced up the bachelor pad, you might as well reinvent the whole package and work on your appearance. Becoming a New Man requires a holistic approach. Do some soul searching to find clarity about who you want to be and what you want to attract.
Your outer appearance directly correlates to your inner landscape. Taking the time to care for yourself will enhance both your inner and outer world. Your magnetic energy is contagious when you are truly living from your power center. If you haven’t already, this is the time to establish a health and fitness regime. Do it for both the physical and mental benefits. The boost of endorphin’s will increase your confidence and help you attract what you are seeking. Fuel your body with food to nourish your soul. The more you fill yourself with healthy fare, the more your body will crave the good stuff. Your clothes will fit better and you will walk tall and proud.
A new wardrobe is the ultimate way to showcase the recent spring in your step. A closet cleanse is necessary as clothing has memory attached to it. That concert t shirt from the show you attended with your ex or the shoes she gifted you for your birthday all hold the emotions tied to the memory. So get in your closet and start purging. Donate, toss and sell or at the very least, get it out of sight so you can start fresh with a clean slate.
Be thoughtful with your choices when replenishing your wardrobe. Think about your lifestyle and buy accordingly. Consider a capsule wardrobe, where everything goes together and you only have pieces that you love and wear consistently. Anchor your wardrobe with timeless favorites such as well fitting denim and quality shoes that you can wear every day of the week. Men practically invented this concept!
If you are having trouble pinpointing your style, look to social media sites such as Instagram and Pinterest for inspiration. Enlist the help of someone who knows and loves you well for a shopping excursion. You can make a day of it and it’s a great excuse to catch up with loved ones. If you are going solo, most reputable stores have a personal shopper on hand who is ready and willing to help you. This is a great way to get out and be with people and you can’t beat the tactile experience.
If you are one who believes the mall is so last century, there are online styling services out there to help and you never have to leave the house! Companies like Stitch Fix, Trunk Club and Elevate all cater to busy men who loath to shop. After filling out a brief profile, a personal stylist will select items for you and ship them to your home. You keep what you like and send back the rest. This gives you time to pursue the interests you are more passionate about in style.
Fashion Tip: Always have a few statement shirts in your arsenal. A sharp button down or clever tee is an easy way to add a whole lot of sexy to your style. Once you have you have a well fitting pair of dark denim to ground the look, feel free to experiment and have fun with texture, pattern and color. You will be surprised at the dapper man in the mirror once you branch out from basic blues and white. Funky pattern and color is a brilliant way to get noticed, it makes you more approachable as women always love to talk fashion!
Have fun and let me know if you have any comments or questions.
I am exited to post today on behalf of Susana and also help her new project of cool and organic swaddling and relaxing bath bombs.
It is a real challenge after a divorce not only to find yourself but also your style. Time to burn the grass stained cargo shorts and yellow “t” you have worn for a decade and get your mojo back… Love as always, Thom, Founder & CEO IveMovedOn.com
